Pick your poison: Pollen, dust, pet dander, mold.
They're all reasons you could be suffering from a headache, sneezing, or a runny nose or eyes.
Sure, you might be doing your best to avoid them…like staying inside when the allergen counts are high.
But there might be a HIDDEN reason behind your sniffles…
This doesn’t have anything to do with the air you breathe.
In fact, it’s something you’re doing to yourself!
The “secret” allergen
Researchers recently analyzed the health insurance data of more than eight million people in Austria—and they found an odd link.
They discovered people on PPI (proton-pump inhibitors) and H2 blockers are buying anti-allergy medications like they're going out of style.
These antacid drugs are actually causing folks to develop allergies!
See, there's a delicate balance between your gut and your immune system.
And PPIs and H2 blockers OBLITERATE your stomach acid, possibly allowing food to pass through your gut walls.
Leaky gut syndrome makes your immune system prioritize attacking your food…leaving your respiratory system completely open for attack.
Even worse, if you're on these medications—you're not even treating the real problem!
Ditch heartburn—the RIGHT way
There are a number of reasons you might think you need an antacid; the top, by far, is heart burn.
There's a belief that too much stomach acid causes heart burn. Hence, you take an antacid.
But that's NOT the best approach.
First, you need to have a gastric analysis done. This will tell you whether you have too much acid or too little…
- If you have too much acid, a glass of water with one teaspoon of baking soda dissolved in it can put out the fires naturally and without side effects. If you don't want to have to lug around baking soda wherever you go, Chios mastic gum can take care of the problem.
- If the analysis says you don't have enough acid, try supplementing with betaine HCl (hydrocholoride). It aids digestion by promoting the production of additional hydrochloric acid in the stomach. Just be sure to include an enzyme called pepsin. Most digestive supplements typically contain these two together.
It’s possible that when you get your acid reflux and heart burn figured out, you'll also ditch your allergies. That's a true two-for-one!
